With all the wines we offer having passed an extremely tough Tasting Panel, it’s never a surprise to see them recognised by Australia’s premier critic. But it’s always nice nonetheless. Each of these featured drops has earned a minimum of 90 points from James Halliday.
A gorgeous white from Tahbilk that you can't beat on value for money. Bright fruit aromas of lemon, lime, pear and guava with floral notes of apple blossom and jasmine. The palate is juicy and taut with lovely citrus and marmalade flavours with hints of savoury spice and minerality towards the finish.

Pear, lemon and floral aromas on the nose open up to reveal a crisp, refreshing palate. A mix of stonefruit and citrus combines with vibrant natural acidity to create a versatile cool-climate Chardonnay.

Bright aromas of lemon, stonefruit with nuances of butterscotch and caramel.

Item Code: ITM7729
Lifted aromas of citrus and stronefruit with hints of flint and cashew. On the palate, delicate yet intense with lovely white peach, nectarine and grapefruit flavours intertwined with a creamy texture from seven months barrel fermentation in French oak. Good natural minerality which provides balance and leads to a long, crisp finish. A wine of intense flavours, texture and complexity - simply delicious.
Item Code: ITM15323
'Hand-picked, free-run juice cold-settled. The bouquet wastes no time in establishing the region, variety and quality of this single vineyard, multi-block riesling. The floral bouquet leads into a palate of striking intensity, texture and structure, lime and lemon both claiming ascendancy, neither winning.' James Halliday
Item Code: ITM25323
The cool-climate of the Yarra Valley allows Chandon to produce Chardon fruit, which is of consistently high quality. Enticing aromas of white flowers, grapefruit and stone fruit aromas. The palate is delicate with notes on fresh pear and apple balanced by zesty acidity and exceptional length.
Item Code: ITM5038
Lifted nectarine, white flowers and cashew on the nose. On the palate, vibrant flaovurs of ripe stonefruit are layered with subtle oak characters creating a textural mouthfeel while the natural acidity adds vibrancy and structure. An elegant example of a Margaret River Chardonnay.
Item Code: ITM15334
A beautifully balanced wine with lifted white peach and nectarine aromas. The palate displays apple, lime and stone fruit along with spicy vanillin oak nuances.
Item Code: ITM3568
"Light, bright yellow colour with a very fresh, refined, intense, restrained but complex bouquet, which doesn't rely on oak or artifact for its detail. The wine is fruit-led and quietly intense, with lovely refinement and subtle depths. There are understated nuances here, which will only become more interesting with a little more time. Lots of lemon and other citrus nuances. A lovely wine which I'd like to drink now, but it has potential to improve further. This is outstanding value." Huon Hooke
Item Code: ITM18748
This wine is all about fruit purity and elegance. Although barrel-fermented, and matured on lees, the oak is a background note, adding complexity and texture. The palate is crisp and textural, long and refined with wonderfully balanced acidity and a hint of salinity on the finish. Excellent.
Item Code: ITM22131
Contemporary in style this youthful wine offers fabulous flavour intensity yet is still approachable and refreshing. A fragrant bouquet of ripe lemon and spicy talc continues onto the palate. Rich and juicy, the palate is supported a crisp acid line which leads the wine to long, clean and refreshing finish.

“Fighting Gully Road is a winery to watch over the next few years. Winemaking is on another level with their wines scoring higher than any
other range we have seen this year. This Chardonnay was the highest scoring wine through a number of tasting panels.” Johan Axlund, Wine Buyer
Item Code: ITM6580
This is a fine Tasmanian Riesling with inviting floral notes. The palate is soft yet lively with intense flavours of citrus, passionfruit and green apple. A decent line of acidity slings through the palate, contributing balance and great length before ending in a clean and dry finish.
Item Code: ITM5035
A classic Rhone variety, beautifully interpreted here by Michael Hall. Aromas of chamomile and cut hay, with a savoury, smokiness too. The palate is delicate and poised, showing elegance and restraint, and culminating in a long, lingering finish. Excellent.
Item Code: ITM22133
Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc of the Year 2019 - Halliday Wine Companion
'Always a regional tour de force, this has high quality Graves written all over it; not merely fermented in French oak (60% new), but aged as well (40% new) for 14 months, with incremental batonnage to amplify the compelling textural detail. A citrus choir with the focus on lemon: lemon grass, lemon curd and ripe Meyer, all soaring along a balancing beam of vanilla cream oak. This is world class, transcending the general malaise when it comes to these oft-abused varieties.' Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM20527
"Light, bright yellow hue with a mineral, almost Chablis-like aroma, the palate likewise crisp and lean, more stony mineral than fruity, the finish cleansing and dry and appetising. A very refined, delicate but intense wine of great fruit purity." Huon Hooke

Item Code: ITM14471
Pale straw in colour with a delicate, tight minerally nose that opens beautifully to reveal lovely aromas of white peach. The palate is surprisingly full-bodied, fresh and rich yet crunchy, while the finish is quite textural and long, with an appealing acid line. A wine that will age gracefully and evolve into a Meursault-style Chardonnay.
Item Code: 30065
"Peglidis presents itself as a wine of intensity and depth with complex flavours that are quite savoury in outlook. Coriander seeds, lemon salt, aspirin and wet slate. Of course, there's excellent fruit and acid balance, both key to its vibrancy, detail and potential age-worthiness. On song."Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM20559
A mature, praline nose with apple notes and leesy characters. The palate is savoury and fresh, with plenty of vibrant acidity, despite its years. Its a well-rounded wine, with plenty of layers, and a long, lingering finish. Excellent.
Item Code: ITM21765
Halliday's Top 100 Wines 2018
"Parisian almond, lemon rind, grapefruit juice, faint wet slate notes. Saline tang to acidity, some light creaminess of savoury nuttiness though the mainstay is a core of blisteringly fresh tart fruit flavour underlying. Incredible velocity and freshness, character, complexity, nerviness. Beautiful, super thing." Mike Bennie
Item Code: ITM14495
"Ripe apple, lemon curd, scents of faint, wet stones. Palate is ample, juicy, almost fleshy but for the licks of minerally tartness of acidity. Has some white chocolate notes, almost the texture of just melted chocolate bar, soft and long, stains the palate gently, the finish perky and fresh. It’s one of those lip-licking, moreish chardonnays, and will be hard to put down. Yep." Mike Bennie
Item Code: ITM14496
"The 'lucky' 7th vintage, whole-bunch pressed, fermented in French barriques (50% new), 100% mlf, matured for 18 months. The brilliant straw-green hue says there's something special here, for it's incredibly detailed, precise and balanced, the three spears of perfect varietal fruit, high quality oak and acidity all unsheathed, but not required to be thrown. Only 88 dozen made." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM19719
A blend of the best Chardonnay fruit from the 2014 vintage. The fruit was whole bunch pressed and transferred to barrel for full wild fermentation (50% on new oak). The result is a refined wine with tremendous complexity. The nose displays aromas of citrus, apricot and white peach, while the palate shows spicy oak nuances and a wave of minerality.
Item Code: ITM4687
"As if by alchemy, with age semillon slips into a toasty, butter brioche, lime-marmalade and waxy realm without its acidity wavering. This certainly has freshness and plenty of years ahead of it, but that magical 5-years-before-release-date includes all the other complex stuff." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM21122
“Its quality is bell clear. It’s almost rich, almost elegant, not especially
complex but not simple either. Oak and fruit form a happy marriage before
striding out to a refreshing, confident finish. It’s a beautiful chardonnay.” Halliday Wine Companion
